Dove Hair Introduces Kinky Hair Emojis

Despite the popularity of Instagram and Facebook and the newly expanded Apple emoji’s, there’s still a one-size-fits-all hair type for female emojis. You would think that since its invention in the late 1990’s emoji’s would’ve evolved in the hair space. But, unfortunately our hair is always depicted as straight and sleek...until now!

To offer a solution for the one in three women in the US with curly hair (and the 82% of curly women and girls who say they’d like to see more female emoji options depicting what their hair really looks like) Dove Hair is launching Love Your Curls Emojis, the first emoji keyboard designed to represent kinky hair.

Coloring Book ‘I Love My Hair’ Praises Natural Hair

Developed in partnership with Snaps, the new emoji’s can be used in text and messenger systems, including iMessage, SMS/text, Facebook messenger and WhatsApp. The keyboard contains 27 curly hair designs, with selectable skintones and hair colors—resulting in a total of 131 curly emoji variations, and even animated GIFs.

To celebrate the launch of the emoji’s, Dove Hair will also be partnering with Twitter so that each time users share a #LoveYourCurls moment, a custom Dove Curly Emoji will auto-generate within the tweet.

Sound like something you're dying to try? Be sure to download the Dove Love Your Curls Emoji keyboard in the App Store or Google Play today to start using the Love Your Curls Emojis in all text and messenger apps.
